Sexiness all year long by Pandemonium on 02/19/2011. Trim: 2006 Acura RSX Type-S, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Extremely unique vehicle that catches eyes. I own the '06 model with A-spec package and a few aftermarket modifications. The styling and overall look really makes this car stand out from the crowd; especially living in America where everyone owns bulky vehicles. Performance is incredible; the K20Z1 engine is unmatched for tunability. Power is nicely matched to the weight ratio. High revving fun that doesn't feel like you're driving a "ricer". With the Tein springs and Falken tires I have this beauty almost hugs the road like an AWD. Honda's VTEC system is world renowned for providing commuter mileage and shocking performance. I commute and play in the same vehicle 24/7/365.
Cons: The backseat is less like a useful backseat and more like an "all time seats down has huge cargo space" hatchback. Comfortable rear seating is only for people under the height of 5'-6" or those flexibly poised in smaller seating arrangements. Even though the Bose sound system has top-notch speakers, the receiver is sub-par for adaptability and the tape deck. By this I mean any additional sound modifications you wish to make (Bluetooth receiver, XM radio, etc...) require replacing the unit entirely.
Overall review: There's no reason you shouldn't at least drive this car once in your life. Owning it I'm incredibly happy with the performance, styling, sound system, stow area and easy access hatchback design and mileage. I'll be keeping this car forever. P.S.(Not really a con, but worth noting) A few modifications are needed ($2k+) prior to making this coupe really shine performance-wise. This is due to the unwavering quality of Honda's engineers for solid durability and resale value.
